Flannel Cakes

Debbie Recknagle


When I was a teen, my mom had a cookbook that I liked to use. Unfortunately, my brother had thrown it away. I always loved the book but don't remember the name of the cookbook. In it, I came across the flannel cake (pancake) recipe and fell in love with it. They are so light and fluffy This is my number one favorite for myself and then my daughter and now the grandkids love them too. Also, you can use this for waffles. Mmmm so good.
